Modinos Mansion was the feudal mansion that supervised the areas of Rodia, Achlada, and Fodele during the Venetian domination in Crete. It was built in the first half of the 15th century and was mainly used for military purposes.
This historic mansion once belonged to the brothers Georgios and Frangiskos Modinos. In June 1830, its premises were used to conduct the Cretan Council, with Nikos Renieris as the head, during which the ceasefire proposed by the Great Powers was decided.
The villa is still preserved in a very good condition and is now managed by the Rodia Cultural Αssociation, where numerous exhibitions are hosted several times a year. The Modinos Mansion is located in the small village of Rodia and is located about 10 km from our hotel.
